Guns N 'Roses – Could the recent Axl / Duff meeting be the start of something big?
When it comes to rock and roll sessions, eyebrows, inevitably begin to rise. Too often we have seen the band emerge from the depths of temper tantrums or a personal tragedy may have happened to them, and offer a large canvas. Following the announcement of meetings, as is the anticipation of children as revive glory days, and fear to realize that the days of glory may be too far from reach. However, the meetings still seem to generate a enormous amount of conversation.
For years, Led Zeppelin was the Holy Grail of meetings. An opportunity for baby boomers to see the new airship beloved, and an opportunity for those not yet alive or too young the first time to catch a glimpse of rock n 'roll Rock is still in shock. It is true that the first time, Live Aid in 1985 was nothing short of a disappointment. Technical Difficulties time zero and rehearsal with two drummers (Phil Collins, Tony Thompson) has to fill the shoes of the late John Bonham did a lousy performance. Fortunately, things were better in 2007 when, with Jason Bonham, the remaining members provides a set stellar, especially considering the other three members hovers around sixty years at this point. However, the sad truth is, John Bonham thundering away behind the game, can never be a true meeting.
Bands like Poison and Kiss are back up in recent years. Poison, original programming back intact, have been touring solo singer Bret Michaels from the obligations and television. Kiss has also had a successful tour in the mid-nineties followed by an album of new material. Unfortunately, many Kiss fans believe are abusing the concept of the meeting, to a guitarist and drummer replacement in classical composition drawings created by Ace Frehley and Peter Criss.
Van Halen is probably the best band of their generation to improve relations and give the fans what they have long dreamed. That the Van Halen brothers, even sharing the same scenario with David Lee Roth is nothing short of a miracle. This miracle alone is sufficient for most Call the resulting sample of a meeting, but is not. In place of Michael Anthony on stage by clicking the Jack Daniels bass hanging from the rafters and singing perfect harmonies, we … Wolfgang. One can understand why Eddie would like to share the stage with his son, have a moment of father-son leads all father-son moments, but the conclusion is that this is not Van Halen. Remove Wolfie by a number or two during the show, but for heaven's sake does not convene a meeting and invite the party Michael Anthony. Eddie Van Halen is David, Alex and Michael. End of story.
Then you … Guns N 'Roses. A band so volatile and explosive, spewing poison on and off stage, nobody can really be surprised by his current situation. What happened Guns N 'Roses is not uncommon, especially when you consider the cast of characters involved in the construction beginning, that's all. Axl Rose on vocals, Slash on guitar, Izzy Stradlin 'on rhythm guitar, Duff McKagan on bass and Steven Adler to the rhythm of drums. Was perfect blend personalities to carry a rock n roll. "
When they arrived, were undoubtedly a breath of fresh air in a scene saturated glam bands who brought clothes and the music first written below. Much in the vein of a classic rock band like Zeppelin and Aerosmith, the world I did not know what to do with Guns N 'Roses at first. Apart from the Hollywood scene that gave birth are relatively unknown. His debut offering, "Appetite for Destruction, was in record stores for most of the year before you actually started to draw. Once he did, catapulted the band to an altitude of size of the few bands ever reach. He followed with "GNR Lies" EP in 1988 and, after some years a little less in the public eye, and headed toward its best. As the saying goes, however, "what goes up must come down," and when Guns N 'Roses collapsed, did so in great style.
What began in the mid-eighties as a band of five street children take the world by storm in 1993, has become something so heavy and egocentric that fans seemed somewhat harsh, the Gunners had wild rock loves. The show that we stripped to see during the tour had been suppressed appetite at the end of the decade, with drummer Steven Adler for skinman Sorum of The Cult, Matt. 1991 not only resulted in the simultaneous release Use Your Illusion I and II, but also a completely new environment with which to display the new equipment. The stage was massive, complex lighting installation through massively expanded the repertoire of the influx of new songs, stadiums sold out, you can expect from a band on the crest of the wave of GNR was then. However, also a pair of singers, a horn section, a keyboardist, tambourine / harmonica, one, two and three hours later starts, riots, strikes and Entertainment Axl long diatribes, now wearing a Speedo, usually addressed to whom he had peed in the day.
However, people continued to come. The tickets were sold. In fact, when we look at how the music scene was changing in the nineties, Guns N 'Roses was one of the only groups feeling since the carnage caused by the grunge movement. It is a testament to how the band was revered by his followers, despite the fact that the internal cracks began to make their way to the surface. Many fans were ready to forget the dismissal of Steven Adler, strip members may be less recognizable to change again after waiting three years. In fact, it was not until Izzy suddenly jumped ship mid-tour in 1991, due to the rapidly changing environment in the area of firearms, Fans began to show interest. After all, Axl and Izzy were childhood friends from Lafayette, Indiana. If they had a fight then surely things might not be open before guns N 'Roses, whose magnitude would not have come to light until many years after the conclusion using his dream Tour. After the release of The Spaghetti Incident, an album of punk covers designed to keep the public again. After leaving Slash by the lack of progress and creative differences with Axl. After Slash Duff followed through the door shortly after. And then Axl has become the only remaining member the soundtrack. A group that, if you just hold onto the skin of their teeth, could have attained the status of Zeppelin-like. They had the songs. They had the talent. They had cold attitude. And, like Zeppelin, when they were, were the largest exhibition on Earth.
Activity in the world of Guns N 'Roses became so cold after the departure of Duff that many were among the dead band. Supposedly Axl has been working with a revolving door of musicians on an album already called Chinese Democracy, however, these rumors are constantly challenged every time the album release date will be delayed. There have been outbreaks casual, as industrialists Oh my God, its made its way into the end of the strip for days, or a visit in 2002 which saw the group a trio of songs on the MTV Video Music Awards. These homes, however, ended always off by the unpredictability and the misfortune that had become synonymous with Axl Rose and Guns N 'Roses. Tried a largely forgotten 2001 Tour to put only three shows in orbit before crashing and burning. It was mentioned in 2002 tour which he was sixteen the only group of thirty-five dates scheduled. Then things got dark again until 2006 when the band toured again without a record on the road behind. However, still no "Chinese Democracy" much less the possibility of a reunion. Only Axl and a group guys, honestly, unhappy, no one really cares.
Hitting a small nail in the coffin meeting was the formation Velvet Revolver in 2004. Former Arsenal has always been busy in the years after deserting. Izzy has recorded regularly, the launch a series of solid disks iTunes. Slash Snakepit group that it came out and went behind a few albums and a series of collaborations with artists like Michael Jackson and Alice Cooper. Duff worked with Matt Sorum, Steve Jones (Sex Pistols) and John Taylor (Duran Duran) in a project called Neurotic Outsiders. He also formed his own band Loaded, they released and toured behind the album (Dark Days) in 2001. Was it for a profit of 2002 by the late Randy Castillo however, Slash and Duff saw play on the same stage again, creating the initial spark of what would become Velvet Revolver. Rounded by Matt Sorum, Dave Kushner and former Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland, the initial offer of Velvet Revolver, Contraband, debuted in first place in the Billboard 200 and Slash and Duff always with the success of independent streams of Guns N 'Roses. Velvet Revolver will release their second album, La Libertad, in 2007, before a pause after Weiland's departure from the group in April 2008.
For Finally, in November 2008, Chinese Democracy found its place on the shelves iTunes Store and Best Buy. To be fair, the album contains some clues, but it's worth or not worth fifteen years of waiting depends on how a big fan of Axl are. Without doubt, was light years from Appetite For Destruction band's sound is known, but growth is inevitable. Still Axl, Slash and the fans wasted no time to participate in online discussions on heated Velvet Revolver and Guns N new material 'Roses. It perhaps more focused on the animosity that had built up between the group members, the former following comments in the press and sensational journalism, among others. As to what is the best material is always just a matter of taste.
The irony surrounding all This agitation on the release of Chinese Democracy is the meeting to speak, now increased to a record level. Seemed the most likely time for each end the battle and to bury the hatchet, but when did Axl immediate plans to visit the album and was absent without leave after its release, rumors began to turn. The most important is that Axl was in secret talks with former members to reunite the group. In retrospect, it seems a bit out of character to do such a thing Axl, but in the world of weapons of anything N 'Roses is possible. However, at that time was enough for fans of Guns N 'Roses in the world to start keeping my fingers crossed. Axl soon give them a reason to uncross.
In a rare interview on the website The band, led by firearms for a long period biographer N 'Roses Del James, Axl then examined the possibility of meeting, or lack thereof. When asked flat out on a meeting of "appetite" has been, Axl made a simple "No" response. He recognized the opportunity to do something with Duff in the future, but expressed doubts about working with Steven Adler and rejected the idea to work with Slash absolute. At one point, Axl refers to his old ax deflector as a "cancer" that is best avoided, even going Slash to suggest should not have ever been to Guns N 'Roses, for starters. With a voice in question, a meeting seemed more distant than ever.
Sin embargo, GNR fans could not ignore the fact that Axl had rekindled his relationship with Izzy in a recent time years. For a handful of concerts on the 2006 tour Izzy surprised by the fans that come out of some spectacular numbers ovation. It's Izzy he shift during the early stages of Velvet Revolver, until talks to singer scare you. Certainly, with Izzy on good terms with both parties, There was the possibility of any potential cross-communication work for a meeting.
So when Chinese Democracy does not work as expected, and visited for the release has not yet been announced, several suggested a meeting was all appropriate. In fact, Guns N 'Roses had split ways with manager Irving Azoff said that Axl tried to sabotage the new incarnation of the band and the strength of a meeting. If the allegations were true, a Despite being unethical, can we really blame Mr. Azoff? The truth of the question was treated as Axl Roses Guns N 'on their own, was not exactly a barnburner. The rest of the original cast had done for him. Velvet Revolver has had some success, but now he was dying a slow death without a singer, despite what they said. Maybe, just maybe, it was time to listen to reason and consider the top five back together, or at least the first four Matt Sorum also an acceptable alternative for many. But before anyone has time to listen to any reasoning, wrapped in clouds and climate in the saga of Guns changed … again.
A year after the release of Chinese Democracy, a visit was announced to be launched in Asia from December 2009. Slash, however, seems to be consistent with the output of the solo album, he mentioned in his book. In March 2010, the same name on the shelves Slash Album does not seem that many guest vocalists, but also with all firearms original alum N 'Roses, except Axl. Then take the road in April with Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge in his voice. Even Duff has been keeping his chops as he teamed with Jane's Addiction to record an album and go on tour.
It was not until last month that the prospect of a meeting is the first real boost in two years. Duff, for the occasional meeting for the first time since 1993, had found its place in the same scenario as Axl's O2 Arena London. Apparently, during a business trip, without knowing reservations in the same hotel as firearms Duff delegation put together enough to put an invitation Axl on stage. It was undoubtedly a great shock not only for the fans now, but for the world of rock n 'roll in general. The reason is that even the most pessimistic fans of Guns N 'Roses are interpreting this as a step in the right direction. The truth is, all we know, other band members Slash and Duff still Velvet Revolver, whether it is more than an exchange once, if Axl and Duff have re-established dialogue, then it could mean the possibility of something happening in the future. Certainly not right away, now two Guns N 'Roses and Slash seems very well themselves. Guns N 'Roses were on tour with success (despite the beginning of the end and bottling off the stage in Dublin) Slash and his own tour moved directly to a supporting role on tour with Ozzy Scream.
Yet it is difficult to overlook the fact that Guns N 'Roses is for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame eligibility in 2012. It would be another blow to the credibility of such an establishment if they are ignored and not entered into its implementation. A much more serious is that the "Appetite" era of the lineup could not see its way put aside their differences for a day and honor the legacy of a band that has certainly left a lasting mark not only rock n roll, but music in general. The worst crimes imaginable Axl would announce his new band on stage to celebrate an achievement that is not even a party. Most probably not the band accepted the honor in absentia to be submitted. A highly unlikely scenario given than other students, including Slash, is sure to show. With all original members in friendly terms with the exception of Axl and Slash, it is really a question of these two commissions many major differences. Is the obstacle that makes the Axl / Duff meeting in London so intriguing, shrinking a couple of strangers to one. Nobody knows exactly what has declined to create a level of animosity and perhaps ever, but may in really bad? So bad that two grown men can not swallow some pride and leave their egos at the door enough to give a little back to the fans and the industry that way? Have time to do anything to heal old wounds? Needless to say, 2012 when Hall of Fame candidates divide the world of rock n 'roll has changed the focus on two sets of important actors, Axl and Slash. Until then there is little more than the rest of us can do but wait and see. No doubt, Guns N 'Roses were great in their day, but 2012 come and go without a celebration of the meeting, then it is probably fair to say that the sun has set in the band forever …. It would be sad.
